Easter Reminders of Eternal Life

Life blossoms in the spring.

Apple Blossoms

You know the drill.  All the leaves fall off the apple tree in the Fall.  The tree looks dead all winter.  But then tiny specs of green appear again in the Spring.  Before long, the pretty, delicate, pink buds are revealed and then blossom.  It’s kind of a relief when I see the apple blossoms.  It’s a reassurance that the tree is not only alive but healthy and it will again fulfill the purpose God gave it.  The blossoms make me smile.

We all have a purpose whether we know what it is or not.  I believe it is through serving others (family, friends or strangers) that our purpose is revealed.  Small, kind, acts or words that make someone smile renews hope.  That, I believe, is the message of Easter.  Jesus Christ gives old things new life and purpose.

Happy Easter!

Genesis 1: 1, 26 – 28

Gen 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”

Gen 1: 27, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he them, male and female created he them.”

2 thoughts:  1) If there are people on other earths, why would they not look like us?

2) If gender wasn’t important, Adam and Eve would still be alone in the Garden of Eden.

(just some thoughts as I was studying my SS lesson from Genesis this morning)
